The LAC is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our 6th Summit for Learning Abroad in the summer of 2023, sponsored by the Learning Abroad Center and Global Programs and Strategy Alliance at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities.

This two-day event will provide opportunities for our national partners to visit our operations in Minneapolis and attend workshops. Topics will include systems, diversity, health & safety, marketing & communication, curriculum & career integration, programming & student affairs, instructor-led programs, and more. Sessions will discuss strategies that have led to the success of our office. We look forward to hosting what we hope will be a catalyst to many future conversations and sharing of models for progress.
